This morning, Italian newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport featured a piece about Franck Kessie’s situation at AC Milan.

With the Rossoneri having trouble renewing the midfielder’s contract, which expires at the end of the season, there are now a few clubs interested in taking him away from Serie A.

Paris Saint Germain are one of the front-runners, while Manchester United are also said to be ‘pressing’ for his arrival at Old Trafford.

Now in a new update from Tutto Mercato Web, it’s said that the French side are already taking the first steps to sign Kessie in a free move.

Following the signing of Gianluigi Donnarumma last summer, PSG could now take Kessie from Milan by offering him a five-year contract worth €12m per year plus bonuses.

The Rossoneri only offered the player €6m, having received a surprising counter-offer of €8m, and that’s why this bid from France makes things even harder for the Serie A giants to hold him.

Tutto Mercato Web doesn’t mention Manchester United this time. Now with PSG working to sign Kessie only next summer, and the Red Devils feeling the need of another midfielder in the squad, that certainly gives the Premier League club a chance of trying a deal in January.

That would avoid the competition for a free move, and also give Milan a fee for a player who they seem set to lose anyway.
